Cinnamon Dark Chocolate Chip Biscotti
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: makes about 20
These Cinnamon Dark Chocolate Chip Biscotti are a delicious treat to enjoy with your favorite cup of coffee or tea.
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (coarsely chopped if large)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the flours, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt until combined. Add the cubes of butter and mix on low speed until the largest butter pieces are the size of small peas.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs and vanilla in a liquid measuring cup or small bowl.
  4. Add the brown sugar to the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Pour in the egg and vanilla and mix on low speed until dough forms. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  5. Divide the dough in half and form each half into a round ball. Form each ball into an 8-inch long log and place the logs on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten the logs so that they are 2 ½ inches wide and 1 inch tall.
  6. Bake the dough logs for 26-28 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges and almost firm to the touch in the center. Let cool for about 15 minutes on the baking sheet.
  7. Transfer logs to a cutting board and use a serrated knife to cut on the diagonal into biscotti. (I find that a careful sawing motion works best to cut them without crumbling.) Place biscotti cut-sides-up on the baking sheet. Bake biscotti for about 15 minutes, until lightly golden.
